Mostly i do 3D design, and for the renders my notebook is not strong enough!
I am not really familiar with notebooks,but i know i need ram, at least 8gb and good video card!
My budget is not so big right now around (700-800Euro), and i was thinking on the options!
I have found one, i dont know it is enough for my programs or not?!
If you have better idea or any suggestion, please let me know!

One CRITICAL thing...check the details on the software he will run.

I had a Dell Precision workstation (tower, not laptop) that seemed high-end (8 cores at 3GHz, 12GB quad-channel RAM, GT8900 video card) and it was NOT GOOD for AutoCAD 2012. It seem the GT8900 video card is NOT SUPPORTED by AutoCAD 2012.

So, check if the video in the laptop (which can not be upgraded) is listed as working with his CAD and modeling software.
